GlobalPlatform to Host Trusted Service Manager Seminar in Shanghai

GlobalPlatform to Host Trusted Service Manager Seminar in Shanghai Standards body aims to ease deployment of interoperable secure services across borders by lowering entry point for new actors and improving user experience

15 April 2014 – GlobalPlatform, the association which standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, is bringing its popular trusted service manager seminar (TSM) to Asia for the first time. The one day event, which takes place in Shanghai on Tuesday, 10 June, is being held in response to industry demand for best practice guidance on how the marketplace can deliver global consistency and clear communication, when managing near field communication (NFC) secure applications in an international roaming environment.

‘GlobalPlatform Presents the TSM Ecosystem of Today and Tomorrow’ will be of interest to TSMs, mobile network operators, banks, transit authorities, and technology and service providers engaged in the deployment of secure, value added mobile services. Delegates attending the free seminar will receive an introduction to GlobalPlatform Specifications that are relevant to actors within the NFC space and an insight into how the specifications enable and simplify the deployment of secure and interoperable mobile services.

The session will also address GlobalPlatform’s Messaging Specifications that define the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders in the NFC ecosystem and explain the association’s End-to-End Framework for payment. These technical documents streamline the service management process by outlining how GlobalPlatform Specifications can be used to implement a comprehensive end-to-end configuration relevant to each market sector. The guidelines aim to reduce implementation costs and speed up deployment of a trusted and compliant mobile service ecosystem.

Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, comments: “We have seen real interest in our messaging specifications from service providers that require clarity of the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders within the NFC market. As new players enter the secure mobile services ecosystem and new commercial partnerships are formed to deliver innovative products, it is vital that there is clear understanding across the infrastructure to support the development of an end-to-end compliant and trusted solution.

“Our previous TSM seminars in Europe and the USA have been very well received by delegates looking to ease the deployment of secure interoperable NFC services across borders and we look forward to bringing this guidance to the wider global market.”

The session will also explore real world implementations with an emphasis on best practices and lessons learned. The use cases will highlight the role of GlobalPlatform in the implementation as well as provide insight into the future vision of these service providers.

At the time of going to press, the seminar is being sponsored by GlobalPlatform members FIME, Gemalto and UL Transaction Security.  Places are limited. To register to attend the seminar and view the agenda, please visit
